    By now you’ve likely read about the 6000+ webOS apps we’ve managed to put together. The files are on my Box account and the link was shared A LOT. This was great but had its flaws. For instance, you can’t download the entire thing. It’s a limitation from Box. That problem has been solved as there is now a public ftp!

    Read the blog https://pivotce.com/2016/07/14/publi...-torrent-soon/

    FTP info

    Browse to ftp://preanon@webosftp.qualitis.hu/ to see all of the files. You can also point your favorite FTP client to:

    site: webosftp.qualitis.hu
    username: preanon

    There is bandwidth limit on it, >2Mbit, and max concurrent user count is 12.

    Speed concerns

    The server is in Hungary so folks across the pond might notice some slow downloads. Do you have a public FTP in the US you’d be willing to establish as a mirror? Contact us!

    My plea

    Considering the bandwidth and max user limitation above, if you don’t need ALL of the apps, don’t select all and download them. There’s no need to be a bandwidth hog. Get what you want as many times a day as you want just be considerate. Thanks!

    Box account

    Since I was using my personal Box account for hosting up to this point, I’ll be removing access to it publicly. Sorry! I’m sure you understand.

    Torrent coming soon

    Tylla and I are also working on a solution for a torrent file. The only issue is getting the updated torrent out to folks who are rehosting the files. We’re working on that plan too but it’ll likely be a naming convention and updates via here and on our Twitter to get the word out about the change.

    For your help

    Thanks a ton for everyone’s help getting these apps saved. Remember, we’re still looking for all of those used-to-be-paid apps that are no longer available. We already have some of the more popular ones (Gameloft, EA, etc). Take a look at the ftp and compare with what you have already installed.

    If you have apps that the share doesn’t, copy your /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications folder to /media/internal using Internalz Pro, connect your device to a computer via USB mode, and drag the applications folder over and contact me. I’ll make sure they get turned back into an .ipk and uploaded to the FTP.

    Happy downloading!

    Wow, this is brilliant! Is there any way to integrate it into Preware (like another working app catalog?)
  3. #3  
    It's great what you established for the community here. Thanks A LOT!

    But as you mention, users should be selective. But how could I find a specific app, without knowing the ipk name. Any plans or chances for a app-catalog replacement/search w. availability info? (like the forementioned preware integration?)

    Just curious. :-)

    To answer both questions, it's possible for someone to build a feed for this to add to Preware yes but it wouldn't be useful without descriptions. Some of the metadata for app descriptions exists but turning it into useful bits would be a huge undertaking that I won't personally commit to. The community could come together and sort through it though. Any volunteers?

    To me this seems like progress.

    Another thing that i would perceive as progress, is if someone could produce a "webosDr for 2017". Something that auto executes and includes every necessary patch and work around required today.

    With these two things, anyone could buy a new old stock or good used phone, and be up and running as functional as possible in today's environment, without data mining a decade of this forum's old, lengthy, and frequently obsolete threads.

    If it could all tie back to Preware, that'd be even better. Is this too much to ever hope for?

    User "mazzinia" claimed that they have kept raw feeds (from the App Catalog?).
    With this there would be app descriptions and titles, which should be enough to make a proper Preware feed out of this.

    Here are all the catalog raws. Please remove .jar from palm-catalog.zip.00x in order to get the original multi archive zip.

    These are the :

    palm beta feed
    palm web feed
    palm catalog feed

    @mazzinia: Thanks for posting. I suppose these feeds were from App Tuckerbox?

    I don't know actually, if they were from there. I'm not the one that downloaded them originally.

    Hi Alan,

    new here but I do have unlimited space and bandwidth hosting at Dreamhost which I believe is USA based. Will see if I can get a mirror setup for these and give it a test before posting a link.
    Just purchased an old HP Pre 3 today as I am getting fed up with giving my marketing info to Apple or Google to use their phones or services and trying to break those ties...

    This is awsome work thanks a LOT for sharing these this allows me to get this awsome tablet back up and running. I could put Android on it but nothing runs as well as WebOS.

    Unbelievably cool. Thanks for all of your work on this, and let us know when you're ready with that torrent file, so we can seed!

    isn't maybe the very old torrent ( 2011 I think ) that still floats around with some games inside ?
